Forum on Religion, Ethics, and Law in a Time of Planetary Crisis and Political Decline

Featuring a conversation with:

  • Karenna Gore, Executive Director of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary in New York City.
  • Herman Greene President of the Center for Ecozoic Studies in Chapel Hill and Thomas Berry Scholar-in-Residence of the Earth Law Center in Durango, Colorado.
  • Susannah Tuttle (moderator), Eco-Justice Connection Director of North Carolina Power & Light, North Carolina Council of Churches in Raleigh.

Focused on these questions:

  • Where are we: At the beginning of a golden age of innovation and progress? Or on the precipice of ecological catastrophe and political breakdown? Or both?
  • Religion is what binds us together. Ethics are what guide us. Law is how we order our lives in relation to society—a society now including non-human beings, ecosystems, and future generations of all species.
  • How do Religion, Ethics, and Law need to respond to our planetary crisis and political decline? How must they change to do so? What is our role in bringing these changes about? And how will the changes affect our lives?

Co-sponsors of the Forum are the Center for Ecozoic Studies, Interfaith Power and Light NC, the Alliance of Baptist, Orange-Chatham Interfaith Care for Creation, Interfaith Creation Care of the Triangle, Climate Action NC, and the Binkley Earth Ministries Team.

  • The Forum is open and free to all, but registration is required.
  • Lunch will be served and a $10 donation is suggested.
